Well, I won't post a pic, but I am 50 and my husband is 28. We have been married for two wonderful years now, and grow more in love each day. We are a team, partners, and treat eachother with incredible respect and love. We do exist!
Yes, they do exist. It is actually becoming more common to see younger guys with older women. The reverse has always existed to some degree and it is refreshing to now see some balance. I am 46 and when I was 34 I began dating a woman who was 47. It was one of the most intense and natural-feeling relationships I ever had. Unfortunately, I let my own hang-ups and insecurities about the age difference interfere too much, as the closeness progressed, and we eventually parted ways. I kept one foot out the door, so to speak, precisely because a part of me worried about the age difference and what others would think (including my family, friends, and co-workers). That was over ten years ago, and I think things are much better now for younger guys. So, let your bf know he shouldn't worry too much about what others may think, and worry instead about what he feels inside.
If I saw you, I would HAVE to look. YOU ARE A STUUNER!! You look like a man would have to be eighteen to be younger than you. It's hard to believe that I'm actually younger, though at 52, I really don't qualify as a "Younger man." :) Whether it's good luck or good genes, it's working for you.
Yes these things do exist and Silverado you're right if people need a photo to prove it they must be living like hermits. You see it all the time in Hollywood! But it is also accepted and done all over. I must admit the older man/younger woman is still more accepted in society than the older woman/younger man. However, that is changing a bit. Anyway age is just a number and maturity does not always come with age. I have met some men in their 20s who acted more mature than some men I have known in their late 30s.What is most important is how you feel about the age difference! My ex-husband was 11 years older than me; and before my marriage I always dated older guys. Than things just changed, I did not plan it, but after my divorce I've just mostly dated younger men. The youngest I've dated is 20 years younger.But I really don't care about the number - its the personality that counts! (So younger or older men -- don't be afraid to say Hi!)
I am a newie on here and am not yet certain whether I will become a member, but have been reading some of the comments and would like to comment on the age gap issue. Personally, since I have started dating again 6 years ago, all the guys I have met have been younger. The youngest was 15 years. We lasted 3years. I do have my limits, that's my choice. I see nothing wrong with dating younger/older people. If it works, then why try to fix it.
